Remaking Mehboob Khan’s Oscar-nominated ‘Mother India’ is an unachievable feat, says Vidya Balan and if someone dared attempt this, she wouldn’t be a part of this. As a tribute to 100 years of Indian cinema, Vidya has donned Nargis’ look from the 1957 cult film ‘Mother India’ and Meena Kumari’s from the 1962-classic ‘Sahib Bibi Aur Ghulam’ for Cineblitz’s special edition. But the actress, who entered filmdom with the ‘Parineeta’ remake, has no intention of working in a ‘Mother India’ remake. “I don’t think anybody would even dare to remake ‘Mother India’ and if someone does then I will salute him, but I will not do it. It is unachievable, really,” Vidya 35, told reporters at the unveiling of the cover page of the magazine. ‘Mother India’ is known for Nargis Dutt’s power-packed performance as a righteous mother, who shoots down her son, played by Sunil Dutt, whom she married after the movie, for being on the wrong side of the law.
